On Sunday, June 28th, at 1pm, the Reclaim Pride Coalition will hold its second annual Queer Liberation March, this time focusing on Black lives and ending police brutality. Marchers will gather at 12:45pm at Foley Square on Centre Street and step off at 1pm. If you go, wear a face mask and keep six feet between others.

Reclaim Pride will livestream the March online at @queermarch on FB and Twitter/Periscope and via Youtube live on reclaimpridenyc.org for those who can’t attend in person.

"We’re horrified by the police murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Layleen Polanco, Rayshard Brooks and untold numbers of others," said Reclaim Pride’s Francesca Barjon. "We’re mourning the endless violent deaths of Black trans women and men like Dominique 'Rem'mie; Fells and Riah Milton. So, inspired by the historic, Black-led protest movement that has taken to the streets here in NYC and across the world, Reclaim Pride supports demands for immediate defunding, disarming, dismantling, and reimagining of police forces."
